Lady Gaga: 'Born This Way' Single Coming Friday

Lady Gaga announced at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve that her next single, "Born This Way," would debut on Feb. 13, but fans might just get to hear it two days earlier than expected. "Can't wait any longer, single coming Friday," the pop star wrote on Twitter this morning (Feb. 7).

Gaga is clearly anxious for the world to experience her latest pop opus: last month, she personally leaked the song's lyrics and credits on Twitter as a thank-you to her fans. DJ White Shadow, who is listed as the single's producer along with Gaga and Fernando Garibay, told last Wednesday (Feb. 2) that the song was recorded "around the world" and that it "sounds like it reads, but not like you think until you hear it."

Than 'The Fame,' Says DJ White Shadow

If "Born This Way" is indeed released on Friday (Feb. 11), it will come out on the same day that another pop star, Justin Bieber, enjoys a big premiere -- the release of his 3D biopic, "Never Say Never." Whether or not the single debuts before the weekend, Lady Gaga is still scheduled to perform the first single from sophomore album "Born This Way," due out May 23, at the Grammy awards ceremony on Sunday (Feb. 13).
